Best Family Law Attorney
This review is seriously long over due. How ever it needs to be known that Jason and his staff are highly qualified family law attorneys. Being a former family law paralegal in the Sacramento area myself... Many many years ago. I know a little bit about how things work in family law. I have never seen an attorney, their partners and staff work as diligently and thoughrou as this team has done for me and my child and my family. Thank you Jason and Sara. Your expertise, communication and compassion is the reason I am a family with my daughter again.

A breath of fresh air
I am so glad I found Mr. Sherlock as a lawyer. I had an hour consultation with him and he helped my fiance with her child custody case. Instead of milking the appointment, he went over every concern we had and gave us different options with our case. I was unsure at first about hiring a lawyer, but this law firm is without a doubt the most experienced and trustworthy business I have come across. Needless to say, I found our family lawyer for life.

Finally found the right one!
I had an attorney for 18 months who looked great on paper but was not giving me the attention and service I needed. I spent way too much money and was getting nowhere. So, I spent a great deal of time and money researching for a new attorney. I did not want to get in that situation again. Mr. Sherlock came highly recommended from a friend of mine who also was a client of Mr. Sherlock. She spoke as highly of him as I am about to do so here. Mr. Sherlock met with me immediately. While he was talking to me during our consultation he was also scanning my court docs and other paperwork. I was very impressed when he was able to accurately summarize my situation, point out some concerning aspects of my case, and tell me how he would move forward in such a short period of time. Mr. Sherlock is clearly knowledgeable and assertive. Both he and his staff have shown me excellent customer service. He is readily available and responsive. I am very relieved to have found the representation I wish I had during the challenging stage of separation and/or divorce. I would highly recommend him.

One of a Kind Attorney!!!
It is never easy for a parent to go through a custody battle. The emotional transitions you have to watch your child endure and feeling helpless. It is never easy to open up and share your fears to anyone especially not a complete stranger. When I first met with Jason I talked to him about my situation, my fears and what I hope to prove to the court. Jason was honest and openly communicated with me. He made me feel listened to and like I didn't have to go through this battle on my own. He became my trusting advisor and friend. He has helped me have more time with my son and is still helping me fight for what's best for my son. He is very knowledgeable, experienced, caring and understanding. He even makes the best coffee to help make the meetings more comfortable. He gives 100% to his clients and will do his best to help you. I would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone who is going through any family custody battles. He truly is one of a kind!

A hero for my children
Jason did more than listen to me tell my children's stories. He heard. He did more than sympathize and express platitudes, he helped develop a strategy. He humored me when I needed him to, but he never lead me astray. He was honest and forthcoming about what the court typically does in child custody cases, but he was also willing to fight the conventions and norms to help them. Jason did what no other could do. We succeeded and my kids continue to benefit from the outcome. They credit Jason with helping them, when no one else would. Each case is unique and different, and his method of practicing family law is to approach each case based on its unique characteristics. Families and children are not cookie cutter, neither is Jason.

Excellent Attorney
My husband and I both would highly recommend Jason Sherlock. His last name fits him well! He went above and beyond the call of duty for our family support case and brought us to our ultimate goal, which was full custody of our two kids. He shot the facts straight and educated us throughout the process. He is very knowledgeable and highly respected in the court, which is most important. Family Court isn't quick, easy, or fun, but Mr. Sherlock made it as enjoyable as he could for us. I would definitely recommend him to anyone searching for a family law attorney.

Ex-parte order
Jason did a great job representing me in a child custody case. He was able to assist me in preventing my ex-wife from moving my children out of state without my consent. He was very professional in his appearance and demeanor in court. I also appreciated his honesty, and advice about my particular case, it was very helpful in my decision making process at a very difficult time for me. He also overseen and assisted in outlining a new child visitation schedule that put me as the father in a better position to spend more time with my children while still respecting their needs and wants (my children are both teens). I would most definitely recommend him and would not hesitate to retain his service again if needed.

Above and Beyond
Jason and his team are professional, competent, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. Jason handled my case with a personal touch I haven't experienced before with an attorney. I have recommended him to everyone I know.

A man who can get the job done.
Mr. Sherlock made me feel very confident, comfortable just on the phone before i met him in person. I had talk to five lawyers before that and it seemed they were not even interested in my case. Mr. Sherlock was happy to take my case and handled it with no problems. He is a man with a good heart and i would consider him a friend outside the work place.

Jason Sherlock-A Lawyer, Husband, and Father, who goes above and beyond for his clients
Jason Sherlock was right on the mark from the get go with my custody case. He ensured that the rights of my 2 Girls were protected, and that their best interests were the front and foremost in the courts. Jason is very compassionate and goes above and beyond for his clients. Jason continues to give me guidance and aids me, when it comes to navigating me through the tcomplex family courts system. What I admire most in Jason is, he is not your average Lawyer, he is very compassionate family man, husband, and an awesome father to his 3 children, that's how I realized Jason is a very genuine man! Thank You Jason for all you do for my Girls and I. Jon Father of 2 Amazing Daughters!

GREAT WORK ETCHIC,with STRONG FAMILY VALUE'S
About 6 yrs ago while trying to prepare paper work for a family issue I was having at the county court house, I happen to see other people asking a gentlemen questions about there paper work.So I did the same .It turned out to be Mr. Sherlock. He was more helpful then I could have Imagined in the short amount of time we were able to talk with each other.Which I would like to ad he was not obligated in anyway to do so, He choose too.I got the phone number of the Firm he was with and made an appointment. after our first meeting I realized Jason was not just an Attorney He Truly was a Family type of person,Your Family became a part of his Family and what was Happening to you was Happening to Him.My case turned out well, however had I met Jason sooner my Case would have not gone as far as it did.Over the past 6yrs I have used Jason in 2 other Family matters which turned out just the way we hoped, and that Jason worked so hard for.I have recommended Jason several times over to many,many people and will always continue to do so. His Family value's reflect his work ethic which is rare and hard to come by.As I said earlier Your Family becomes a part of his Family. Sincerely, J. CLARK

Changed my mind about lawyers!
Jason assisted us in a custody battle where the mediator recommended the child be pulled from my custody. I am the father and Jason was able to prove the child was better suited to be with me! He is a no B.S guy and well priced!!!!

Much much much more talk than action
I had the experience/expense of working with Mr. Sherlock. I had initially retained his partner Sara. She went on maternity leave and due to their other partner completely bumbling a judgement. Jason stepped in. He talked a big talk. Made me feel at ease. But actions fell far far far short. Emails went unreturned for a good amount of time. Paperwork not filed on time but sent to the courtroom clerk last minute. I spent two years and tens of thousands of dollars with this firm. Trusting their advice and the process. I am baby steps ahead of where I begin.
